Make Your Own Bubbles & Make them Bounce!

This post may contain affiliate links, view our disclosure policy for details.

A favorite of all kids is bubbles- and what better what to teach them about bubbles than to let them actually make their own!! It’s very simply (although can be messy!) to make. Materials Needed:
6 cups of water
4 cups of liquid detergent
1 cup corn syrup


Combine all ingredients together in a bucket and let it sit for the day. A good idea is to mix it first thing in the morning, and then tell the kids they can use them after school or after dinner.
Another experiment you can try requires also having dry ice. If you blow bubbles onto the dry ice they will bounce around above the dry ice because of the carbon dioxide layer formed. You can see below in the video the reaction. If you happen to get a bubble to stick to the dry ice, it will actually freeze over and can be picked up!

    Thanks. I usually put vegetable glycerin in the detergent/water mixture. It helps keep the mixture together, but it's kind of expensive. I'll have to try out the corn syrup!
